Who really needed a live-action Hercules film when the animated Disney version is definitely the definitive Hercules tale? Yeah, no one. And we definitely didn’t need two! But that’s what we got in 2014 and one definitely out-classed the other. While they both gave the backstory of Hercules’s life, it was Hercules starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that made all money. Poor Kellan Lutz and his The Legend of Hercules just couldn’t get a leg up on The Rock’s powerhouse career. Both films were quickly forgotten but you know what wasn’t? Every single song from the animated version! Just sayin’.
